The survey, “Singles in America”, published late last year by Psychology Today, Match, revealed one significant change in young romantic attitudes since the Covid pandemic – the desire in most unattached people to form deeper relationships with a sense of security.
Of the 5,000 young singles surveyed, 74 per cent were seeking a committed partnership, contrasted with a much lower 58 per cent in recent pre-pandemic years.
Physical attraction is important to 86 per cent of singles, but being able to trust a partner who is emotionally mature wins out as the most desirable quality in a partner.
Young singles are not likely to sleep with a partner on the first date, with 31 per cent only expressing this choice, which is the figure for pre-pandemic singles’ attitudes too. The majority prefer to get to know their partner a little better before having sex.
And 84 per cent of singles are more drawn to meeting a mate in the real world rather than online, as much as dating apps are important. Young singles want something tangible with actual promise.
